Augmented reality is one of the future’s technological investments, which is why many companies are sticking with it. Facebook and Apple are two examples, but they are not the only ones. Without further ado, Xiaomi does the same, as seen by the Asian company’s unveiling of a new accessory.
The product in question is identified as follows: Mijia Camera Glasses And, yes the smart glasses have a 50-megapixel camera as well as an 8-megapixel periscope camera with up to 15x zoom and 100 minutes of continuous recording.
Xiaomi launched Mijia Glasses yesterday, calling the wearable technology “Never seen before”
A 50-megapixel Quad Bayer four-in-one wide-angle camera and an 8-megapixel periscope camera with split optical image stabilization are included in the Google Glass-style device. The main wide-angle camera captures the user’s first point of view, while the periscope lens has 5x optical zoom and 15x hybrid zoom for long shots.
The Mijia glasses, which have an inbuilt 1,020 mAh battery and magnetic 10W charging, can record continuously for up to 100 minutes and charge from 0 to 80 percent in less than 30 minutes – all while weighing only 100 grams.
The product features a Sony Micro OLED display with up to 3,000 nits of peak brightness and a TÜV Rheinland eye protection certification. The glasses also contain an LED shooting indicator on the front of the camera body, which lights up to indicate to others when the wearer is taking photos or recording movies.
The Mijia Glasses are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8-core processor and come with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, dual WiFi, and Bluetooth 5.0. Xiaomi claims that the product has a number of clever Augmented Reality (AR) functions, including “time backtracking,” which can save recordings within 10 seconds of pushing the shutter and shooting.
The technology allows for one-click sharing to users’ social networking platforms, and photographs from the Mijia Glasses can be instantly imported to the user’s smartphone via the linked app.
In addition, the Mijia Glasses include real-time Xiaomi AI text translation between English and Chinese, as well as intelligent recognition of animals and plants in the scene. Other AR functions, like screen-casting, are promised in future product upgrades.
Cusumers in China can be able to pre-order the device for a discounted price of 2,499 yuan (about $370), with the gadget set to retail for 2,699 yuan (approximately $400) in the future.
It is unknown whether Xiaomi will market Mijia Glasses outside of China.
